Good points:
Excellent screen resolution, size & weight. A fully fledged sub-notebook with the power to run Windows 7, but for the price of a mid spec Netbook
Bad points:
Fan a little noisy and SD card slot on front is easy to know & accidentally remove SD card (a pain when being used as ReadyBoost)

Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic laptop for the price. I bought this instead of a netbook because of the screen size, movie playing abilities (beware netbooks in this regard) and PRICE! Why are netbooks becoming so expensive?? Also good keyboard and aluminium surround is nice touch. If RAM or HDD size are an issue, just upgrade and your still not spending more that £300. Lastly, I hate to admit it, but having Vista is handy. I do like the idea of open source but just don't have the time:-)
Bad points:
At this price nothing. Ok, more RAM would be nice and a bigger battery but i'd still rather have this over overpriced netbooks. (I get about 2hrs out of it with wifi off and power saver mode on when watching a movie).
